Notes

Abstract: The recent discovery of RNA interference (RNAi) has revolutionized our understanding of RNA biology and genetic regulation. Researchers have mounted an international effort to elucidate RNAi pathways in order to harness them for their therapeutic potential. Caenorhabditis elegans, a model organism widely used to study RNAi, has distinct silencing pathways for interfering RNAs derived from endogenous and exogenous sources. Although the exogenous RNAi pathway has been largely mapped, endogenous RNAi pathways remain largely uncharacterized. In particular, RNA Helicase A (RHA-1) is an actor in endogenous RNAi whose function remains unknown. C. elegans deficient in RHA-1 exhibit a phenotype similar to animals deficient in ERI-1, a component of the endogenous 26G RNAi pathway. To test whether RHA-1 works in the 26G pathway, we measured changes in 26G interfering RNAs in worms deficient in RHA-1, ERI-1, and both RHA-1 and ERI-1. The preliminary data indicates that RHA-1 is not involved in 26G RNA biogenesis, but may be working further downstream in the pathway.
